2005 Toyota PRIUS Exterior Lighting Problems, Complaints and Defects

 Issue ID754910
 Internal NHTSA #10298662
 Model Year2005

Product type codeVEHICLE
 Description of the problemI own a 2005 toyota prius with a problem with the hid (high intensity) headlights. The passenger side headlight has been going dead intermittently since december and the driver side headlight recently started to do the same thing. If i turn the headlights off and then back on again it corrects the problem for a while. I do a fair amount of driving in the dark and on the highway, so this could be dangerous, to say the least. I was going to replace the lights myself but i was unaware that they were the hid lamps until after i had picked up a new bulbs from the auto parts store. I am going to return the ones i have and pick up some hid bulbs but i am concerned that this may not alleviate the problem. When i researched the issue online, i found that this seems to be a common and serious issue/defect that keeps recurring on the prius models from 2005-2008. I will save the old bulbs and any other related parts when i change them outthis weekend.
